'We picked Crumpet up at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on 22nd December 2016. I knew it was a little risqué getting her so close to Christmas but I was just too impatient to wait longer. She arrived looking so tiny in her little crate. I put my fingers through the door of it and she immediately licked my fingers. It was love at first sight!
We took her on the train back to our apartment. She was surprisingly calm and quite inquisitive to everything going on around her. We took her home and gave her a bath as she was a little mucky. That evening I started playing with her and soon got a taste of her happy, jolly personality. Over the course of the next few days we had people coming over, including a couple of friend’s babies. I was extremely cautious as knew it was very early on to bring people over, especially little ones. She took everything in her stride however and apart from shocking my mother-in-law with her lack of house-training, she was perfect.
We were told she loves people and children and this couldn’t be more true of Crumpet. She adores them to the point where I get jealous! She’d walk off with absolutely anyone, no loyalty whatsoever. Our two children adore her and she’s so patient, being patted and picked up constantly. With other dogs she’s desperate to play, regardless of size!
There has been the odd hiccup that I imagine is completely normal with any dog (rescue, or non-rescue!). The odd bit of chewing, some house-training mishaps and the constant plucking of disgusting things from her mouth which she picks up on the streets of Paris. She’s our little street hoover.
People are so shocked when we tell them she’s a rescue dog as she is so friendly, so calm and just such a lovely little dog to have around. We can’t imagine our life without her and are now considering getting our second WAHF dog to keep her company when we’re out!'
